Reveal!!! Remember This Client Dining Room?!?

I loved working with my girl Tiffany (she won't care I mentioned her name) as she rolls with it like the best of them... laid back, open to change and just fun to be around! She was on to me many months ago when I showed her "before" photos. Her husband had given the green light to, "get er done" and so for me that meant getting some pictures and a plan up on the blog! After that happens, there is no turning back, right?! I'm sure she won't mind if I show one or two last pictures?! After all we can't do our big reveal if we don't know where we started! 


They were fortunate to be given this very nice, dining set and china cabinet from her mom. It is beautifully made, valuable furniture and so the plan was to just update the look of the pieces so that it fit with Tiffany's more modern style. If you recall, I walked you through the plan several months ago on the blog and we have been working on the details to make it all come together! Here is the plan we worked from...
Our initial plan was to paint the cabinet as well as the table and chairs but she was apprehensive to paint the dining set as it was an antique and with the right upholstery on the chairs we could for sure incorporate the brown tones with the black and white! 
I'll let the photos speak for themselves and without further ramblings~ 
the AFTER:


We replaced the chairs at the end with upholstered solid gray chairs to modernize the look of the table and pull in our charcoal color. We replaced the old chandelier with an over sized more modern, black drum shade! The antique chairs shown below were reupholstered in a fun modern fabric that brought our brown, black and gray tones together nicely. 


The china cabinet that was painted a sage green in its original state was a little harder to make work with our plan so she had the entire cabinet painted white and we picked out a stencil to do on the back of the cabinet in a black and gold paint combination. I cannot tell you how pleased I was with the result of this piece! Its looks so much more updated and really shows off all her white china and accessories displayed! 


Every great dining experience deserves a cocktail nearby! Most bars are not right in the dining room so a bar cart is always a perfect option tucked in the corner to house a few things that you don't want to get up for and they are maybe the closest most of us are going to get to having a butler! We ordered the wall mount wine rack from Etsy and the bar cart is the very popular and very affordable Target bar cart. 



For the artwork we chose this very sophisticated canvas from Z Gallerie! I loved that is was large enough to fill the space on the long wall and that it did not overpower the room. I think the true showstopper should be the detail of the cabinet and everything else should fall around and compliment that! Plus it captures the scene so familiar to Tiffany of the swanky dinner parties she promised to include us in on next time...Got my gold organza gown all ready to traipse through that new space!:)



One last before and after in case you missed anything:)!!

Hope you enjoyed the tour! Have a great week(end)

  6. The designer of my dress responded quickly to inquiries and the dress did arrive faster than expected. For me it was a bit long, even with heels, and I'm 5'5. If you are petite, expect to have to have it fitted.

  9. Such an improvement. I have that triple wall mirror backordered from pottery barn for a client's stairwell so it is nice to see it hung. Also purchased that bar cart for the same client...such a steal when you compare it to West Elm identical version for twice that much and we found it on sale for $88.
